Image Blowfly, the famed, filthy bluesman and self-proclaimed "original dirty rapper" needs your help. Apparently, he has fallen behind on his property taxes and the Miami-Dade tax assessor is threatening to foreclose on his property to pay off his taxes. Blowfly is trying to raise $11,000 to pay off his back taxes as well as cover Indiegogo expenses. You can see the campaign here.

In addition to writing numerous hits for Betty Wright, Sam & Dave and KC & the Sunshine Band via his more "straight" persona Clarence Reid, Blowfly has released dozen of off-color albums as well as having collaborated with musicians including Jello Biafra, Afroman and King Coleman. Tragically, as with many '50s-'70s songwriters, Reid did not receive significant income from soul/funk hits that he penned. Blowfly has released several albums though Alternative Tentacles including Fahrenheit 69 in 2005 and his punk rock covers album, Blowfly's Punk Rock Party in 2006.
